In what turns out is the third book in a trilogy of Mac performance information, Joe Kissell has released Take Control of Speeding Up Your Mac. While it didn’t start out as a series, this book joins Take Control of Troubleshooting Your Mac and Take Control of Maintaining Your Mac to help you get and keep the best performance possible on your Mac. Joe explains how he applies the scientific approach to the subject, and makes the techniques accessible to both geeks and non-geeks alike. Hardware, software, defragmentation and off-the-shelf maintenance utilities are just some of the points covered in this discussion, and are only a small sample of what is in what might be Joe’s most important book yet.
